Magnolia Pictures has picked up the U.S. distribution rights to the meta dark comedy, “Entertainment.”

Written and directed by Rick Alverson, “Entertainment” follows an aging comedian performing his way across small venues throughout the Southwestern United States. Gregg Turkington a.k.a. Neil Hamburger — the latter of which is a comedic persona of the former — stars in the main role. Tye Sheridan, John C. Reilly and Michael Cera make appearances throughout.

“Entertainment” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in the NEXT <=> section and most recently screened on the closing night of the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s New Directors/New Films.

A release date has not been set yet for “Entertainment.” Magnolia plans to release “Tangerine,” another NEXT <=> section alumnus acquired out of Sundance, during summer 2015.
